Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This profile is a work in progress, as is its owner. I don't expect
either to ever be finished.
I majored in Philosophy so I could work with computers. Like most
of college, it made more sense at the time.
I'm foreign. Regardless of where you are from.
I can climb rocks, run up walls, pick locks, and throw people three
times my weight. At least, I used to be able to.
I recently realized I have a Bacon Number of 4.
I believe that love is an illusion, albeit a very convincing one.
So convincing that it will probably fool me again at some
I once had a drinking buddy I called Anakin.
Because he killed all the yuenglings.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My occupation is "Adventurer", but my childhood lied to me about
how well that pays, so I dabble in some other things here and
I have most recently worked as a web programmer and am currently
working on setting up practice as a clinical hypnotist.
I have done game development in the past and want to again. I
worked on some games you may have heard of or even played.
Eventually I want to publish a few papers or possibly books, and
then get a PhD in Philosophy. Maybe not in that order, who knows?
Life is an ongoing surprise.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Seems like a lot of people like to comment on my accent. I like to
change the subject by asking them where their own accent comes
from. This confuses some people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm awful at ranking things! I reserve the right to have this
section be completely non-representative of my tastes. So
's Works Of Love,
The Brothers Karamazov, Harry Frankfurt
's On Bullshit,
's Overworld series, Author
's Book (why is this section even
formatted this way?), Les Miserables, One Hundred Years of
Movies: My actual favourite movies can be readily guessed. They're
the same ones you usually see on a fairly mainstream profile with a
slightly geeky lean. I feel like including that canonical list will
tell you nothing about me, even though it would be accurate. So
instead, here is a list of movies I think I probably like more than
most people do. It doesn't mean I like some obscure movie better
than Inception, necessarily, just that I want to distinguish
between IMDB's Top 250 Movies and Stuff *I* Like. Hopefully that
does what I intend and doesn't come across as too pretentious. Not
that any of these are super obscure anyway. Anyway, here's the list
as far as it occurs to me right now:
, Big Fish
, Garden State
, The Marine
, Synecdoche, NY
, Wreck-It Ralph
, Liberal Arts
TV Shows: Firefly
, Death Note
The Last Airbender
, Friendship is Magic
Food: Chipotle burritos. Lasagna. Pad Thai. Chicken Tikka Massala.
I can cook pretty decent approximations of all of those.
I also quite like sashimi
, diet coke
and soul food
I'm also interested in starting to cook more often. Got recipes?
Recommendations? Let me know!
My current favourite musician is Reggie Watts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In my experience, if I decide I can't do without something, it gets
taken away pretty quickly.
And then I do without it.
"Man is the creature that can get used to anything, and I believe
that is the very best way of describing him."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The pursuit of goodness and happiness, and what constitutes these
(goodness being closely related to happiness, or to an aptitude for
attaining it), and how to both attain them for oneself and help
others to do so in the broadest sense. Happiness can
be a bit depressing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably chillaxing on the irc
. I'm pretty exciting.
Okay, that's not entirely true. I may well be out at dinner or bars
with friends, or watching a movie.
I don't teach penguins to yodel every friday night from 6-7:30
But if there were penguins in my area, I would try.
...I just realized this section needs an amendment since I moved
here. While it is true that there are penguins in my area, you have
to pay people to go see them within business hours of some kind.
However, the tour guides do have some rocking all-terrain vehicles
that they visit the penguins with. Maybe I could be a bit flexible
about the hours of my yodeling lessons. I will have to ponder this.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My biggest fear is falling down an up escalator indefinitely.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you match the personality profile described in my most recent
Or if you have read my profile and, on this basis, are terrified of
messaging me but have this strange compulsion to do so anyway, like
that feeling where you find yourself staring into an abstract yet
unnerving painting, knowing that somehow the abyss is also looking
into you, trying in vein to look away and instead finding yourself
stepping closer, your fingers inexorably reaching for the "Message"
Or if the most disconcerting thing for you about that paragraph was
"in vein [sic]". I feel like we'd get along pretty well then.
If you message me "How can you read that bore Dostoyevsky, I had to
read Anna Karenina for school and it was awful", expect to be
ignored. If you can't understand what is objectively wrong with
that statement (quite apart from matters of taste or tact), there
may be problems.
That said, I'm not always a horrible elitist. I can be very picky
about public displays of stupidity if they're the only thing I know
about you. I'm not going to mind if we've been talking for a while
before I notice that you can't distinguish between
there/their/they're or that you think Shakespeare is something that
tribal hunters do to get psyched up.
This is probably a good place to discuss something I've been asked
a couple of times recently - what I want out of OkCupid. I'm mostly
looking for an opportunity to kill some time on the internet and
possibly a chance to meet new people.
I'm not necessarily looking for dates, although if we hang out and
it works that way, fine. I still pretty much only message girls
through this though, because I feel weird messaging another guy
through a dating site. However I'm still pretty much fine talking
if a dude wants to message me. I don't see that happening though,
as I gather most dudes on here have conversations consisting of "u
r hott can i c ur tits lawl".
And no, you can not see my tits.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
